Main idea: I am not a Gnome user
Once uppon a time I ran evolution. I liked it. A very robust application. After I installed Arch, I only used KDE components & a few others. Nothing Gnome-dependant.
Today I told myself: what if I try evolution again, to see how it evolved.
pacman -Sy evolution
Targets: libgnomeprint-2.6.1-1 gnome-common-2.4.0-3 libgnomecanvas-220.127.116.11-1
libgnomeprintui-2.6.1-1 orbit2-2.10.1-1 libbonobo-2.6.0-1 gconf-2.6.1-1
gnome-mime-data-2.4.1-3 gnome-vfs-18.104.22.168-1 libgnome-22.214.171.124-1
libbonoboui-2.6.0-1 gnome-keyring-0.2.1-1 libgnomeui-126.96.36.199-1
libsoup-1.99.26-2 gal-1.99.11-2 gail-1.6.3-1 gtkhtml-3.0.10-2
docbook-xsl-1.65.1-1 gtk-doc-1.2-2 linc-1.1.1-1 evolution-1.4.6-2
Well.. wow.. those are maaany dependencies but.. I removed everything not necessary once, I can do it again after...
Installing went well but...
1. small problem: the first run gave an library error (fixed by running ldconfig)
2. THE problem: the second run it gave:
(evolution:3688): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: g_object_set_valist: construct property "type" for object `ESplash' can't be set after construction
I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/home/mircea/evolution/shortcuts.xml"
(evolution:3688): libglade-WARNING **: Could not load support for `gnome': libgnome.so: cannot open shared object fi e: No such file or directory
(evolution:3688): libglade-WARNING **: unknown widget class 'GnomeDruid'

(evolution:3688): evolution-shell-CRITICAL **: file e-shell-startup-wizard.c: line 840 (e_shell_startup_wizard_creat ): assertion `data->start != NULL' failed
Of course, consecutive runs eliminated one or two warnings, but the assertion is still there. Running with "--no-splash" didn't help.
Any ideas? Do I need to run something first before running Gnome apps? Some config utility or something?
(don't tell me "the whole Gnome" because that's not reasonable).
Lots of thanks.

Kind of unbelievable, but who knows what the developers wanted. I find it rather... too strange!...
Lots of thanks, once again Xentac.
Comment on Evolution: it looks soooo goood, now I'm wondering wether's something left from KDE that I still need.
P.S. I am sure that your signature is not about me
